Being an Engineer is a great career choice. It offers so many opportunities both in Ireland and world-wide. Most positions will have terrific travel opportunities after a few years experience under your belt, and if you choose you course carefully your qualification will be recognised by employers all over the globe. Also an engineering qualification will open doors into management roles if that is your preferred career choice, but the reverse is not the case (if you do a course outside of engineering, you will probably not be able to branch off into engineering a few years after graduating).

Administrative
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Event Management Graduate

Caroline Flynn Event and Marketing Coordinator at Sonas apc

"The MSc in Event Management provided me with the opportunity to conduct research on a topic which ultimately resulted in me being recruited by the organisation I currently work for.

The highlight of the MSc in Event Management was conducting my primary research for my thesis, through this process I made some valuable contacts within the industry and developed a deep understanding of my research topic.

This course is ideal for someone who has an interest in event management but who wants to formalise that interest into a career. I would recommend someone to do the MSc in Event Management to allow them to gain a better understanding of the events industry from both an academic and practical perspective in both Ireland and internationally."
